New Wave Coffee
With its colorful checkered floor tiles and framed vinyl album covers, New Wave is a throwback to the decade of excess. A plethora of tables, chairs, couches and desks encompass the large space allowing students to hook up their MacBooks to free WiFi and type late into the night. Music from Elliott Smith and Ween pumps through the speakers while baristas serve up kitschy sandwiches like “The MacGyver” and brew bottomless coffee for the red-eyed set.
